A while a back, someone on Threadbanger asked me for closeups of my corset, and I finally got pictures taken, so I figured I'd put them up here. This was pretty much scrapped together out of things I had lying around. I made it over two years ago, using a heavy white cotton, three types of boning, and hook & eye tape for the front instead of a real busk. I used a Simplicity pattern, although I can't remember the number.

It has a lot of imperfections, but I love it all the same, and it fits extremely well.

The only thing is, I happened to make it a little big, so I can't actually tighten it. Ah, well, my organs will thank me when they aren't rearranged.

Today I took photos of most of my clothing & accessories for a wardrobe project I'm doing with a few friends. (You know who you are!) We're going to post them online and help each other put together outfits. I am also going to print them all out on cards and use a bulletin board to mix, match, & plan outfits. Finally, some wardrobe organization! ^_^


  1. Lovely! I've always wanted to make a corset, but after six or so years working in this beauty without so much as a single stay poking loose, I know I couldn't sew anything that could come up to my standards... and why invest in materials for something I won't wear?

    Some day, however, I will be good enough to give it a try. Then I shall rock.

  2. Haha, I had that EXACT same problem! I made mine too big...
    It's very pretty! You did a wonderful job on it!

  3. That looks so good. I'm making a corset at the moment, the Elizabethan kind.

  4. Corvus Thank you! Holy cowww I'm amazing that your corset held up for that long! That's impressive. (I love that photo, by the way. Where did you work, if you don't mind my asking? Was it a Ren fest or something?)

    Hannah Oo, do you have photos of yours? I'd love to see! :) &, thanks, cutie!

    Anna Aw, thank you! Oh, that's so awesome! Are you doing it as part of a full costume?

  5. Beautifull Addie in a hot hot corset! There's nothing better!
    I live in mine...well, when I go out that is.
    Awsome job on the sexy corset!:)


I love hearing from people! Feel free to leave thoughts, questions, etc. Thanks, dolls!
